Summary: I purchased this driver 2 weeks ago , and love it. I tried 3 other expensive drivers & this last years model, out performed them all , and was the least expensive. I wanted 25 yrds more and I'm getting 50 & 60yrds yrds more when I hit it dead on the nuts . My swing speed went up 6 mph. I was hitting 185-200 yrds....and now 210 230 yrds and have twice hit it 260 yrds ! Still getting used to the club, but I'm very happy with it so far.

Summary: Bought used from ebay. Stiff aldila by you shaft. 9.5 loft. Pretty happy, makes me feel confidence over the ball. Inconsistent 300+ yard drives. Mostly around 270. But that's far enough.
Model Reviewed: TaylorMade Tour Burner TP 8.5* x-stiff
Summary: I used purchased this driver in May gently used from a seller on ebay. I've used several drivers off and on over the past couple years, switching between a 8.5* cobra x speed to an older Cleveland launcher 7.5*. I've even purchased an alpha model long drive driver at one point to try. Before I bought the taylormade I was back to the cobra and hitting it fairly well, and about as long as I ever had. However, I still struggled with pulling it left sometimes and every once in awhile I'd get a snap hook out of it. My biggest complaint with the cobra was the sound. A few times a round when hit solidly it would produce such a harsh metallic ping sound that it would literally leave my ears ringing.
I decided to try the taylormade because of the price (around $80 with shipping) and the first few rounds had a bit of a love hate relationship with it. My distance was still decent but it lacked the power of my cobra when I really laid into one. I should say that I am around 6'4", 270 lbs and around a 115-120 mph swing speed with the driver. On my last full round with the cobra I put one 360 off the tee, and with the taylormade have been able to still get around 300 or a little more but not near what was possible with the cobra. However, the difference is consistency. While with the cobra I was never completely confident that it would go the direction I wanted, the TP has become my most confident club in the bag. It took a few rounds to get used to the weight, as it at least feels quite a bit lighter than the cobra and therefore a little harder to feel throughout the back swing. My last round out I hit the time out of the ball all day with it, averaging close to 300 yds and hitting from the short grass far more than I was used to. I was hitting from the back tees on the course for only the second time and ended up shooting a 79 after a round of 43 on the front. I was 2 under on the back through 6 holes and only lost strokes on an errant 4 iron into a par five and a miss hit 8 iron over a par three with a pond. I believe this club to be responsible for producing results off the tee and inspiring confidence in the rest of my game. If I could find wedges to inspire my wedge game like this thing has my driving, I'd quit my day job.
Customer Service: Didn't use talormade's service but am very pleased with the product. The only thing that left me a little irritated was that it claims to be square to slightly open and probably sits at least a half a degree or more closed. Not a huge deal other than if it is labeled as being square to open, it should be square to open.
